A small deed that might just save a life.

A local neighborhood at high risk for fires got a visit from Red Cross volunteers on Saturday. 

The Sacramento Red Cross installed more than 150 alarms in Oroville, this is all a part of a nationwide effort called the home fire campaign that was started in 2014.

Since the start of the campaign, the Red Cross and partners have installed than 1 million smoke alarms and helped to save 332 lives.

The Red Cross chose Oroville because of its socio-economic status.

“By being able to install smoke detectors in communities in need that might be affected by house fires, our goal is to reduce deaths associated,” Travis Bilyeu, a volunteer from Red Cross.

On Monday, the Red Cross will be installing smoke detectors in Siskiyou, south Oroville, Stockton and Auburn.
